With the emergence of atheism without shame, and with the continued frightening effects of religious conservatism on national and international politics, the examination of unscientific beliefs is a welcomed guest at our door. The trick to making skepticism engaging is handled nicely by David McRaney and his guests on his weekly podcast You Are Not So Smart. McRaney examines why we believe what we believe and offers keys to deciphering the self-delusion that we all experience, otherwise known as our beliefs. He presents his thoughts in a calm and rational manner that shares information, as opposed to dictating it. He also introduces a cookie recipe with each episode.
